Mandala Dance Company presents CROSSOVER

Event Type
Event Description

Join us at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts on Friday, July 12th for CROSSOVER - a production by Italian contemporary dance company, Mandala Dance Company.

CROSSOVER investigates the meeting of energies and bodies within open spaces. Everyone lives according to their own seemingly immutable rules, which they impose on others because of the need for self-assertion, but any encounter with another person's rules causes a situation of pressure. However, the positive opportunity that derives from this encounter, if accepted, leads to personal adaptation, sharing and cooperation, and potentially, transcendence: this is human nature!

Concept, choreography, and direction by Paola Sorressa, founder and artistic director of Mandala Dance Company. Mandala Dance Company is a contemporary dance company based in Ladispoli, Italy. Along with its associated school, Profesion Dance, Mandala Dance Company has been an International Sister School partner of the Ruth Page School of Dance since 2015.
